increase last month. Shipments for the first half of 1987
totaled $1176.4 billion, 4.1 percent above the same period
last year.
Unfilled orders for manufactured goods increased $4.3

consecutive monthly increase.
The inventory held by manufacturers at the end of June
showed a slight decline of $0.4 billion or 0.1 percent to
$321.5 billion. An increase of $0.5 billion in nondurables
was more than offset by a decrease of $0.9 billion in
durables. The inventory to shipments ratio for June was
1.60 percent down from 1.63 in May.
NEW ORDERS. New orders for manufactured durable goods in
June increased $1.7 billion or 1.6 percent to $108.7
billion. Over three-fourths of the increase was in
electrical machinery, which increased $1.3 billion or 7.3
percent; most of the increase was in nondefense
communication equipment. The rest of the durables increase
was in primary metals, Up $0.4 billion or 3.9 percent, and
instruments and related products, up $0.2 billion or 4.7
percent.
The major declines were in transportation equipment and
nonelectrical machinery. Transportation equipment declined
$0.6 billion or 1.9 percent; aircraft and parts were down
$0.6 billion or 5.8 percent. Nonelectrical machinery
decreased $0.6 billion or -3.2 percent, with the largest
declines in engines and turbines and office and computing
equipment.
Nondurable goods orders increased $1.7 billion or 1.8
percent to $96.1 billion. All the major industries
increased except chemicals which decreased $0.2 billion or
1.1 percent.


SHIPM2 TS// Shipments of durable goods in June increased
$2 b ion or 2.0 percent to $104.5 billion and
MuTes $1.5 billion or 1.6 percent to $96.0 billion.
!& es were widespread. In the durables sector the
est increases were in transportation, up $0.8 billion or
3.1 percent, most of which was in aircraft and parts, and
primary metals $0.4 billion or 4.9 percent. In the
nondurables sector, foods increased $0.4 billion or 1.4
percent and tobacco $0.4 billion or 23.4 percent.
UNFILLED ORDERS. Unfilled orders for durable goods
increased $4.2 billion or 1.1 percent to $371.7 billion, the
fourth consecutive monthly increase. Since February, the
backlog has increased $14.4 billion or 4.0 percent. In June
the largest increase was in transportation equipment, up
$1.9 billion or 1.1 percent to $167.8 billion; most of the
increase was in defense shipbuilding and tanks and
nondefense aircraft and parts. Both steel and nonferrous
metals contributed to the $0.8 billion or 4.4 percent
increase in primary metals. Electrical machinery was up
$1.2 billion or 1.3 percent, with most of the increase in
nondefense communication equipment.
INVENTORIES. Inventories of durable goods in June declined
$0.9 billion or 0.4 percent to $208.2 billion. This is the
third decline this year and the largest since the 0.7
percent drop in December 1986. Within the major industries,
declines were widespread. Inventories held by nondurable
goods manufacturers increased $0.5 billion or 0.4 percent to
$113.2 billion. Increases in foods of $0.6 billion and
tobacco of $0.1 billion were partially offset by a $0.3
billion decline in chemicals.
By stage of fabrication, finished goods inventories declined
0.8 percent, all in durable goods. Work in process
inventories increased 0.4 percent with both durables and
nondurables increasing. Materials and supplies inventories
showed no change, with an increase in nondurables offsetting
a decrease in durables.
